Fellow Ukrainian citizens!
I heartily congratulate all Christians of Western Rite Orthodoxy on Easter!
The Feast of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ fills our hearts with the abiding faith in genuine and enduring good, true love, and overwhelming happiness. It symbolizes the transition from death to life and inspires us with hope for spiritual and physical revival.
People traditionally spend this day with family, with friends and go to church to commemorate Christ’s resurrection. Unfortunately, not this year.
The world has changed. These days, we must first and foremost think of our family and relatives. We must abandon the traditions that are valuable to us to protect the lives of those we love.
I wish comfort, peace and prosperity prevail in everyone's home. With abiding faith and good deeds, we are capable of getting through all the challenges. Good health to you!
Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal
